Wired News: Spin Doctors Create Quantum Chip

From an article that Michael sent me a link to (Thanks Michael):
University of Michigan scientists have created the first quantum microchip, which could be a giant stride in the race to produce a new generation of brawny, super-fast computers.

Discusses a new quantum microchip where a "bit" has 3 states: on, off and both. If I'm reading this right, this would give us a Base-3 numeric system, instead of Base-2. Cool stuff.
